SoulChef, Cheers (Feat. Awon)

From what little I know of SoulChef, he’s a producer that hails from New Zealand. His tracks blend hip-hop, jazz, and soul with—at times—really nice runs of instrumental beats.

I recently came across the album Food for Thought that appeared on the scene in late 2013. I was immediately…

The Dune to the Left

It was the first time the three of us ventured out together; in the physical sense, that is. We’d been a team remotely—online and in chat—for almost a handful of months already. But this was the first time we were all together in the same space representing our

Clearing The Decks

Sometimes life is so busy you feel like you’re grasping for straws and nothing comes to completion in a satisfactory way. You begin one thing and are sidetracked by three more things. Respond to two things and four more inquiries land on your doorstep.

When it rains it pours, they’ll…
